Avatar ImageResaPotter says: Wow!These are so cool!Now I really have to get to the WW!I bet the costumes are really expensive though ;/ Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Oh my Merlin I want Hermione's dress!!!!! =D But I bet it costs quite a few knuts and gallons. The owls are so cute. I am going to spend so much money when I finally get to the Wizarding World! :)Avatar ImageRachezee says: All the 21/2 year old I nanny wants is a plush dobby doll. She loves dobby, and yet none exist anymore. They used to have them a long time ago but now they are exceptionally expensive to buy second hand. They need those!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Oooh, I think I know somebody who covets those Snape robes! And her initials are VJ...Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: You know those alma mater decals that people stick on the rear windshields of their cars? Why isn't there a Hogwarts version? They would sell millions of them.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @WeenyOwl, I was - ogling - having a look at them earlier. Unfortunately, I appear to lack both the cash ($195!) and the figure (especially the height) to carry them off.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Foiled again! My attempt at striking through the word 'ogling' in my last comment failed to work. There must be *some* way of formatting these comments.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: PS Weeny, is this the sort of thing you have in mind: http://www.amazon.com/HOGWARTS-ALUMNI-Vinyl-Decal-Sticker/dp/B001L9XWAYAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: Ya, I know a couple of folks who would covet Snape's robes as well.... Actually, if the quality of manufacture is good, the price is not really exorbitant I think.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: No, V-J - I've seen ones advertised that say 'Hogwarts Alumni' or '...Graduate' or '...Honor Student' or 'Hogwarts' followed by the name of your house. But to look authentic it should just say 'Hogwarts,' with perhaps a small crest underneath, the way real university decals look. I did, however, find a guy online who's making his own Hogwarts and Unseen University parking permit stickers that look pretty realistic!Avatar Imagemoglet says: That picture which is below the caption 'Dumbledore's Robes', doesn't look like Dumbledore's robes to me.Avatar Imagemoglet says: I looked at the photo via the link given to the Daily Quibbler and you can look at them a bit bigger and Dumbledore's robes look a bit better like that, they do seem to be a rather darker colour than the robes in the film though, and not really much like them.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @Weeny, it's clearly one of those things we don't do in the UK. @Moglet, there are clearer pictures here, but I think it must have been photographed in a very poor light. Otherwise our Albus would think it very dowdy, I'm sure.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Oops, double-posted, and forgot the link: http://behindthethrills.com/2012/08/new-harry-potter-merchandise-at-islands-of-adventure-is-fit-for-a-ball/Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Double-posted, and forgot the link: http://behindthethrills.com/2012/08/new-harry-potter-merchandise-at-islands-of-adventure-is-fit-for-a-ball/Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I keep trying to post the link to the pictures I found, but Leaky won't let me.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Though even more oddly, the posts that wouldn't appear here display on my profile.Avatar Imagemoglet says: I had a look at that link (thats about the same size as the image I'd already looked at) it's not just the colour, somehow they just don't really look that much like the robes, I've been looking at photos of Dumbledore (the Michael Gambon version) online.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Yes, it's not really substantial enough, it it?Avatar Imagemoglet says: I've just been looking in the studio tour book, and the robes are much more subtle in the detail at the top across the chest, but it may just be that the photo is taken in poor light and makes it look totally the wrong colour, they should look much lighter than Snape's robes as they are a sort of lightish, warm toned grey. These are specifically from the third film, trying hard to find a photo from that one! Now I just found a replica costume (not from WWoHP) here: http://images.halloweencostumes.net/dumbledore-costume-zoom.jpg which looks excellent!Avatar Imagemoglet says: I just posted a comment that disappeared, anyway the robes are from the 3rd year specifically they became more elaborate in later films as far as I can see. In the Studio Tour Book you can see a picture of the actual robes which look much more subtle in the detailing across the chest. I did find rather a nice version of the robes online (not from the official merchandise site) at a link which may or may not show up here: http://images.halloweencostumes.net/dumbledore-costume-zoom.jpgAvatar ImageMissWeasley8 says: Cool :)Avatar ImageG.Weasley says: I wish I could go, I'd buy Hermione's Yule Ball dress and wear it to my prom! Some day I will get to go to the see the theme parkAvatar ImageG.Weasley says: Those don't look like Dumbledores robes at all. Like seriously, they look nothing like the movies.Avatar ImageTarana says: Those owls don't look particularly special. They're nice, but I've seen just as nice ones in Dutch toy stores, and the zoo shop. My guess is, it's only the tag, that makes them really 'Potter-ish'. I like baby Norbert, though. I'm not really interested in buying any robes, but I like seeing them. Well, I'm buying Potter stuff any time soon (knock on wood), because when I went to the WB Studios I bought myself a stuffed Buckbeak, and a keyring. The best thing was walking around all the sets and props, of course. I didn't want to leave. The castle model was awesome! And trying the butterbeer ;o) Avatar ImageTarana says: I meant "I'm NOT buying any Potter stuff any time soon" Whoah, if that isn't a freudian slip, I don't know what is ;o) Thinking about it, btw, I do have a plush owl somewhere, from my early Potter fan days (about 11 years ago). Bought it in a department store, even before the movies and all the merchandise came out. Merchandise was a bookmark and a puzzle card then .Avatar ImageTarana says: What am I saying? 11 years ago? More like 13. Times flies. And now, I'm really out of here.
